New Mineral Directory launched

[Dunboyne, Ireland] -- Alltech and Context Products have recently published a new reference guide entitled The Minerals Directory, an essential review of minerals and trace minerals in livestock with key information from aluminium to zinc.

The publication gives readers an overview of 27 minerals and trace minerals in animal nutrition. It contains information on mineral sources, functions, benefits, absorption, metabolism, antagonists, requirements and more.

As performance levels of all classes of farm livestock increase, micro-nutrition is becoming more crucial. The book covers the role of minerals and trace minerals in a number of species including ruminants, poultry, sheep, pigs and horses.

The Minerals Directory is written for nutritionists, feed industry experts, animal producers and for all those interested in diet formulation.? The book was coordinated and written by Dr. Wesley Ewing and Sally J. Charlton.
